FIRST OFF BEWARE ON THE SIZE LISTINGS OF THESE PANTS, I chose one that just said 8 and received an 8SHORT. Make sure to double check when they are added to your cart!
I recently ordered like 8 pairs of PraNa women's hiking pants for comparisons on styles and sizes and I'm probably even more confused HA! Since PraNa has so many different styles and fits I'm going to include my review of the 4 styles I have so you can compare if you already have one style.
So, I'll start with my measurements I am a 5'10, 150lbs, 34B, pear shape, large booty/thighs, normally a 27/28 (6-9)tall pant gal and seriously each style/size/color fits SO differently.
In the MEME pants I found that both the 6 & 8 (inseam measured while wearing was 31") fit great (PraNa true fit said I should order size 6). BUT when hiking in the size 8 I felt super restricted and I found the MEME pants didn't have as much give or stretch as the HALLE pants when climbing or taking larger steps on the trail. The crotch was longer too and I kept pulling them up so my crotch wasn't sagging down, loosened a little throughout my hike. Style wise these are super cute, and I loved how the skinny pant wore with my hiking boots. Cargo pockets fit tissues nicely-that's about all, I used the back pocket for my iPhone 6+. No drawstring inside. [I kept both the size 6 coal & 8 cargo green]
In the BRENNA pants I found them to be WAY too short for me (I typically like a 33" inseam, but can handle a 31" if I really like the pants), the size 6 measured while wearing was 29" inseam and I felt had the best fit for me; the size 8 was 30" inseam and had a little looser of a fit. Super cute, but just too short for a tall girl like me. The "knee detail" was super cute and the material was a lot thicker and closer to a colored denim- not as much stretch as the HALLE or BRIANN pants. No drawstring inside. [I sent both cargo green back]
In the BRIANN pants I found the more comfortable size to be 6 (tall, I think the inseam was 32"). I was, in error, sent an 8 (short) and found them to obviously be way too short (28" inseam) and the crotch hung down way too low. The BRIANN size 6 tall were probably my favorite skinny pant of the 3 styles, which I wasn't expecting! They have a good amount of give when walking, but don't sag down when you have the proper size. No drawstring inside. [l kept the 6T coal and sent back the 8S moonrock]
In the HALLE I can wear an 8 & 10 (tall) comfortably-but when hiking is where you really tell the difference in the styles and sizes; the size 10 definitely started loosening throughout my hikes. The tall inseam is seriously 36" and a little too long, but I didn't hem them-with my hiking boots they don't drag. I prefer the size 8, but the drawstrings inside helped when the size 10 started loosening throughout my 15 mile hike. The one front pocket fit tissues nicely-that's about all, I used the back pocket for my iPhone 6+. These are my overall favorite pants of the 4 styles, the size 8 is my new go-to. I recently ordered them in a size 6 to see how they fit-will update when I receive them. Drawstring inside. [I kept 10T dark khaki, 8T coal, and just ordered raisin 6T.]
